In the last post, I showed you the brown bedroom that needed some repair work. The accent wall had sustained the most damage when a good portion of the wall had to be replaced when some pipes inside that wall were upgraded. The homeowner decided to just the insert a tan color and the surrounding wall a deep brown. This goes well with the brown straie finish on the remaining walls.
Two other areas needed to be repaired. The homeowner wanted me to just touch them up as best as I could, vs. painting over and re-basecoating. This finish is not forgiving and does not easily repair. I knew, especially since this finish was already 9 years old and quite faded, a good match was not going to happen. This is the before picture.
Next up, a settlement crack. This crack really needs the attention of a plasterer who will open it up and fix it correctly. It’s not a quick fix or it will just crack again. The homeowner decided to hold off on a real fix and just have me darken the crack. This is the "before" pic.
…a little better.
